Free Bigwig Studio 4.2 Update adds new modulation effects Now Available


Bigwig has announced that Bigwig Studio 4.2 is now available.


Biwig Studio 4.2 latest update comes with three main new effects. They go by the names of Chorus+, Flanger+ and Phaser+.


Bitwig Studio 4.2 adds new modulation effects, and they are quite literally bursting with Character


Bigwig says that, because each of these effects has four different ‘Characters’, you are effectively getting 12 new audio processing tools.


Bitwig says that each of the Characters is similar to a different era of vintage studio hardware and, as a result, will give you a different type of sound.


If you want to get under the hood, you can mix and match LFOs, step sequencers and any of Bitwig Studio’s 38 modulator devices to make the algorithms your own, and it’s worth noting that all three of the effects are available as modules for Bitwig’s Grid modular sound design environment, as well.



Bitwig Studio 4.2 adds a third device to The Grid:  Note Grid. Designed for processing and even generating notes, this can access The Grid’s 184 modules and polyphonic structure.


In addition, there is a new Note Out module – connect a gate signal and this will start outputting notes. Pitch, velocity, and channel can be set manually or with dynamic signals, and MPE fans can go even deeper by accessing signals for each note’s timbre, pressure, gain and panning expressions. The Note Out module can also be used in the other Grid devices – Poly Grid and FX Grid.


Note Grid comes with eight “production-ready” presets that are designed to show off what it can do.



Bitwig Studio 4.2 includes other tweaks as well, and includes a French language option. Tres bon!


Anyone with an active Bitwig Studio upgrade plan can download the version 4.2 beta today, with the official release scheduled for March.
